Booster seat and high chair injuries

injury booster seat

Recent statistics suggest a child visits the emergency ward every hour for a booster seat and high chair injuries. From 2003 – 2010 injuries have climbed 22 percent according to the journal of clinical pediatrics. Many of these injuries are related to children being left unattended, some only for a few seconds. Unfortunately high chair straps are often to blame. One blog I read suggested manufactures should develop a restraint similar to amusement park rides with bars that lock the child in? I believe it’s best to use a simple, good quality, three point harness and stay with younger children at all times.
The balance of reasons involve mechanical defects, poor assembly and a host of obscure reasons. The Step Up chair is a one piece, modular design which eliminates the need for assembly!
